A Few Deals Lately At the Local Stores

Here are a few deals I did last week..... My town's Shursave affiliate grocery store doesn't accept internet printed coupons(they are still in the dark ages it seems)however the Shursave in the next town over accepts manu Q printed as well as internet printed Qs. Since I was heading over near that store last week I picked these up.....


Campbell's tomato soup was on sale for .88¢ a can there.
I printed off 2 x $1.20/4 Campbell's soup products IPQs.

Bought 8 cans, using 2 x $1.20/4 IPQs making my .88¢ a can soup now .58¢ a can.
Regular price depending on which store you shop at here ranges from $1.19 to $1.49.
At .38¢ a can I can't match that price with store brands of tomato soup even when it's on sale!

This is an item I like to keep on hand for cooking and for "grilled cheese and tomato soup" Season.  ;-)

Then Weis(PMITA)Markets had Angel Soft TP on sale for $5.47 for 16 roll packs.....

I picked up 2 packages last week and 2 more yesterday.
There are $1/1 IPQs on Couponsdotcom.  These Angel Soft Qs have been resetting every month and the expiration date is 12/31/16 so I have a stack of those Qs tucked away already this year.
Then Weis set me a booklet of Weis Qs and there was a $1/1 Angel Soft Q in that which I can stack with an IPQ/ManuQ.

When I bought the first 2 packs at the Weis in the next town over the transaction was this.....
2 x $5.47=$10.94-$2(2 x $1/1 IPQs)=$8.94-$1(the Weis Q)=$7.94.

I found an Angel Soft Weis Booklet Q sitting on the shelf at the Weis in the next town over when I went to pick-up 2 packs there so now I had a second Angel Soft Weis Booklet Q to use when I bought the second 2 packs yesterday!

So all 4 packs looks like this.......4 x $5.47=$21.88-4 x $1/1 IPQs=$17.88-2 x $1/1 WeisQs=$15.88 for 64 rolls of tp.

But add in that there is a $4 when you spend $20 on Angel Soft Rebate on SavingStar so now my OOP is $11.88 for all.

Another Weis Deal I did this week.....

If you purchase 2 packages of select Chi-Chi brand items this week you get an instant $5 off of a Ground Beef purchase.
While Weis doesn't have any really low prices on Ground Beef this week I did find some marked $3.99 lb. that were close to $5 in price.
We are always needing flour tortillas for something around here and I like the bigger ones(the ones Dollar Tree has for $1 a pack are smaller and don't work for us as well but I buy them in a pinch).
These tortillas on sale for $2 a pack were cheaper than the store brand regular price so I bought 2 packs for $4.  The ground beef was $5.43 and I had a .50¢/1 lb. of ground beef pack Weis Q(that they had mailed to me), so with the instant $5 discount on the meat + the .50¢ off Q the 3 items were $3.93 OOP.  The deal would have been a mite better had there been valid Chi-Chi Qs available as well.

The sausage on the left in the photo was an instant Meat Discount Sticker find over in the meat department- 1 lb. of Andouille Sausage reg. priced at $6 with a $3 off sticker so half price.

So I paid after sales/coupons/rebates $21.85 on $66.57 of regular retail worth of food/paper goods which is a 66% savings rate.
I just wish I could acquire all my groceries at a savings rate of 66%.    8-)

Also picked up last week--reduced ground turkey for $1.88 lb. pack and roaster chickens for .78¢ lb.
My freezer is jammed full right now because of all the great meat deals lately.  Not a bad problem to have, right?

I just peeked at the new Weis ad and they are going to be selling Kraft shredded cheese bags for $2.50, which is not such a hot deal in my book(I like to get my cheese for $2 or less per 8 oz).  But there are $2/2 Kraft IPQs on Couponsdotcom now which will bring the price down to $1.50 a bag which is worth buying at that price point so if I am find room in the fridge some cheese may be coming home with me sometime after Thursday when the sale ad changes. lolz

Have you found any great deals of food lately?



  1. Yes, 66% is a great rate of saving! I know you have all the facts somewhere, but have you ever tallied and posted at the end of the year your rate of savings for the year?

    1. Yes, check out the food spending page tab at the top of the page. I tally up my yearly & monthly averages.

    2. Well, that makes me feel dumb. Thanks. Your savings percent has risenover the years. So, that is progress. I have been thinking about how you could increase your savings to about 80%. Of course, I would be doing the same.

      One thing I am going to try do is raise lettuce for salads. Salad greens are NEVER on sale and there are no coupons! Growing them in rotation and allowing them to regrow after cutting might give me enough salads to save money.

      Actually, salad greens are on sale at stores with no electric cart and sometimes out in the county. And, they are brands not carried by WM, so I cannot price match.
